With revolutionary tooth Whitening, you can turn back the clock and transform your smile.
The most commonly recommended and practiced cosmetic dental procedure, tooth whitening removes stains on teeth; the cosmetic procedure can be performed at home or at your dentists practice.
Home Tray Whitening: One of the methods for whitening teeth uses a ‘tray’. First of all, impressions are taken from which a study model is made. This is painted with a special material which increases the thickness of the tooth area. When the tray is prepared, a small pocket is produced. The whitening solution occupies this pocket ensuring that it only comes into contact with the required surfaces and that no damage is done to the soft gums. Patients wear the trays at home for a period of two weeks.
In House (in the surgery) Barrier Whitening: Before applying the tooth whitening gel, the gums need to be protected, a protective barrier is applied and hardened using a bright light. The whitening gel is then applied and activated using a bright light. The gel will stay on the teeth for some time. This is then washed away and the barrier removed. Leaving bright, white teeth. The treatment normally takes one hour.
For more information of these procedures please ask your dentist or your hygienist.
